Re: Mars

Thanks David. The RGB was nowhere near as good as this from the OSC. I've a feeling there may have been some condensation on the filters; there was certainly a lot of moisture around. I'm very pleased with this image though.

Mars

Well I had a session with Mars this morning. Set the alarm for 2 AM. It was worth it though, I did some RGB but here is a quick process of the image I took with the Altair GPcam colour. Scope was the C8 at f.20 and I used an ADC. 2500/10000 frames stacked. Enlarged 200%. https://cdn.astrobin.com/thu...

Neowise close up.

Well this comet has certainly made me work hard for an image of it! This was again a lucky capture at 1.15 AM, just before the cloud moved in again. I really wanted several shots so I could do a stack and eliminate some of the noise, but I should be thankful I got just one. The comet was too dim/sky...

FINALLY a clear night for Neowise

This may not be as spectacular as some but since we have had weeks of cloudy weather I was pleased to see the comet at all! And that was through binoculars. Then I pointed the camera in the general direction and took some shots. Fortunately I got the comet! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: The sky is s...

NLCs from the north of Scotland.

I was looking for the comet but it was too low behind some clouds, but some great NLCs. :) https://images2.imgbox.com/f1/61/UycwGgYr_o.jpg https://images2.imgbox.com/be/cb/I2yynanO_o.jpg https://images2.imgbox.com/11/63/36YWOWei_o.jpg https://images2.imgbox.com/9c/15/e5umZn1H_o.jpg https://images2.i...

Re: The SUN 5th May

Sunspots! Nice images Cliff! I really must make an effort and do some solar imaging. In particular I would like to do an animation on a prominence should I get the chance, something I have yet to attempt. :D

Some more high res lunar.

Here are some images from 31 May when the moon was first quarter, taken with the C8 and Altair GPcamV2 mono. The seeing wasn't quite as excellent as my last session but still pretty good. There is some loss of contrast too as the sky was still quite light (it never does get completely dark at my loc...

Elusive Mercury

Mercury.imaged with the C8 at prime focus with the Altair GPcam V2 at 10.30 PM last night. It was nice to actually see it but it was so low that it was just a wobbly jelly. The problem is I don't have a permanent set up so my goto accuracy isn't good enough during the daytime. I found him on this oc...
